This is good place. I visited it last Feb with my boss and now again in Oct with family. All the food served here is Swaminarayan - without onion and garlic. But very good food.

Nice food but crowded. Plenty of choices in vegetarian dishes. All dishes are without onion and garlic but even then so much of variety. Nice experience. Natural ice cream was best.

The waiters attended us on time and they were polite too. But cost of the Thalli is little expensive AED 36. But worth... More

If you are looking for refined Jain food, this is the place. The entire restaurant does not serve dishes with onion / garlic. It is a 10 to 12 minutes walk from Burjuman Metro Station. Limited seating. Natural Ice cream, Coconut breeze and fried vegetable not to be missed.

Thali is a very good choice u can make and save up space for ice cream they are all home made. I am a regular with icecream but the food was good as well considering there is no onion or garlic.
